Whilst there is wifi it is completely unusable Also its location whilst good for motorway access is pretty isolated and as its only 10 miles from sheffield which is a far nicer than barnsley id suggest stay there...

I attended a wedding this weekend. I cant fault the Hotel, food was good, clean and inviting but... and a big but the man behind the bar was so rude and pig headed. It stuck out like a sore thumb that he did not want to be behind a bar serving people. Such a shame to let the full experience...

First impression was how dark and depressing it was in Reception,which also carried on into the Bar area. Our meal was just ok and could have been hotter considering how long we had to wait for it, service was really ,really...

I stayed one night midweek. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The hotel was quite and bed comfortable so I did have a good night's sleep. There were very few at breakfast. I often fell hotels should consider cooking breakfasts to order when they know there are only a few people booked in rather than the buffet style....

I've stayed at this hotel for almost the whole of December 2016. Friendly staff and a great service. Both the lounge and the restaurant offers nice and tasty food to reasonable prices. Try their Barnsley chop, it's really good!! Close to the hotel you find Bannatyne health club with free access, a good health club with both gym, swimming pool...

Stayed for the festive season and had an excellent stay. Christmas was warm and friendly and all festive meals superb. Organisation by management and staff very professional. New Years Eve was again a tremendous evening with DJ and a great group 'Manhattan'. Room comfortable and warm. Provided a lovely 40th birthday lunch for 32 people on New Years Day again...
